The hunting process is full of complexities with great rewards but mistakes are rarely small.
It’s so easy to become complacent in life, even with scary things like chainsaws, guns, relationships or even driving, to name but a few. However I don’t think I will ever become complacent in the act of taking an animals life. I have so much respect for our wild animals and the environment they live in, I wish we had more and more wild space for them.
@mosswoodland and I stalked this fallow doe yesterday. Nothing will be wasted, it’s local, sustainable, organic, free range..... and we worked for it. The real work starts when you pull the trigger, 25kg of meet hanging from my pergola waiting to be butchered.
The more time I spend hunting in our pockets of woodland and fields the more amazed I am that our wild animals call these places home all year round, they never get to go dry them selves in front of a fire or have a hot drink these beasts are properly tough!
